All financial aid recipients are required by federal and state regulations to meet standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress as established at Brookdale. This policy applies to all students applying for financial aid from any financial aid program administered by the Financial Aid Office at Brookdale.

Student Academic Progress policy is monitored each term for all students.

Please note: the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy is different than the College’s Academic Standing Policy  

In addition to a minimum GPA requirement, the Standard Academic Policy examines the number of credits you have attempted, and stipulates how many of them you must earn. There is also a maximum number of remedial credits (30), for which a student may receive financial aid, as well as a Maximum Time Frame in which a student must complete their degree.

The policy examines the number of credits you have attempted, stipulates how many credits you have earned, and requires a minimum GPA.
